@bore ~ AI experiment: 700 7SD programs thrown into a digital box, shaken & dumped out in bits with an entered 'seed word'.

bore: Andy's son ran 700 hours of old SSD shows through a Google Artificial Intelligence program. It extracts clips from the conversations and creates an almost-but-not-quite realistic show.

brian in new Orleans:

great idea for a show...reminds me of the South Park episode where the writers had to stitch together dialogue from the character "Chef". Isaac Hayes quit with no notice after the show ripped his religion. they wrote chef out of the series using snippets all tied together to create a narrative for Chefs final episode....genius!

Listener Robert:

By the description given in advance, I'd thought it was going to use speech recognition to get cues from us calling in live.

They've done "automated" Ken, Andy, and both together., but they were really only semi-auto. They've done a few "puppet master" too, which wasn't auto at all. But this is FULL AUTO! And it's TOO good, none of the pauses one would hear in realistic interaction.

This is the sort of thing I mean when I describe 7SD as "experimental comedy".

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm
bore:

from wikipedia:

Just as humans can be killed or otherwise disabled, computers can be turned off. One challenge is that, if being turned off prevents it from achieving its current goals, a superintelligence would likely try to prevent its being turned off. Just as humans have systems in place to deter or protect themselves from assailants, such a superintelligence would have a motivation to engage in "strategic planning" to prevent itself being turned off. This could involve:
- Hacking other systems to install and run backup copies of itself, or creating other allied superintelligent agents without kill switches.
- Pre-emptively disabling anyone who might want to turn the computer off.
- Using some kind of clever ruse, or superhuman persuasion skills, to talk its programmers out of wanting to shut it down.
